  • Truly, sir, in respect of a fine workman, I am but,
    as you would say, a cobbler.
  • Marullus. Where is thy leather apron and thy rule?
    What dost thou with thy best apparel on?
    You, sir, what trade are you?

    Second Commoner. Truly, sir, in respect of a fine workman, I am but,
    as you would say, a cobbler.

  • A trade, sir, that, I hope, I may use with a safe
    conscience; which is, indeed, sir, a mender of bad soles.
  • Marullus. But what trade art thou? answer me directly.

    Second Commoner. A trade, sir, that, I hope, I may use with a safe
    conscience; which is, indeed, sir, a mender of bad soles.

3 I / 1
  • Nay, I beseech you, sir, be not out with me: yet,
    if you be out, sir, I can...
  • Nay, I beseech you, sir, be not out with me: yet,
    if you be out, sir, I can mend you.
  • Marullus. What trade, thou knave? thou naughty knave, what trade?

    Second Commoner. Nay, I beseech you, sir, be not out with me: yet,
    if you be out, sir, I can mend you.

4 I / 1
  • Why, sir, cobble you.
  • Why, sir, cobble you.
  • Marullus. What meanest thou by that? mend me, thou saucy fellow!

    Second Commoner. Why, sir, cobble you.

  • Truly, sir, all that I live by is with the awl: I
    meddle with no tradesman's matters, nor women's
    matters, but with awl. I am, indeed, sir, a surgeon
    to old shoes; when they are in great danger, I
    recover them. As proper men as ever trod upon
    neat's leather have gone upon my handiwork.
  • Flavius. Thou art a cobbler, art thou?

    Second Commoner. Truly, sir, all that I live by is with the awl: I
    meddle with no tradesman's matters, nor women's
    matters, but with awl. I am, indeed, sir, a surgeon
    to old shoes; when they are in great danger, I
    recover them. As proper men as ever trod upon
    neat's leather have gone upon my handiwork.

  • Truly, sir, to wear out their shoes, to get myself
    into more work. But, indeed, sir, we make holiday,
    to see Caesar and to rejoice in his triumph.
  • Flavius. But wherefore art not in thy shop today?
    Why dost thou lead these men about the streets?

    Second Commoner. Truly, sir, to wear out their shoes, to get myself
    into more work. But, indeed, sir, we make holiday,
    to see Caesar and to rejoice in his triumph.
